The purpose of this iLab is to show the student how to create navigation systems for an Access application. Students will create a main navigation form which links to additional navigation forms called Enter Data and View Reports. Additionally, students will create forms to automate printing reports and Closing or Exiting the Database. The Enter Data form allows you to open Customer and City forms automatically. The View Reports form allows the user to automatically open the Customer List and Customers by City reports. The Print Reports form will allow users to automatically print the reports. The Exit Database form allows users to close the database and exit the application entirely.
The navigation forms can provide some measure of security to the database as they may prevent users unfamiliar with Access from entering database objects directly; they make using Access more intuitive to use, and can prevent new users from inadvertently damaging your database objects.
